The natural stacking order is left is higher than right.

To get around this you can repeat your left div after the right div and then use the hidden styles
Something like this
CSS - add this to your styles
	.showsmall {
		display: none;
	}
	.showlarge { 
		display: hidden;
	}

Open in new window

HTML - note the use of the showlarge and showsmall classes
 <div class="maincontainer">
  <div class="mainleft showlarge">
    <div class="row">
      <div class="col-md-12">Column 1 - full width, represents a row</div>
      <div class="col-md-12">Column 2 - full width, represents a row</div>
      <div class="col-md-12">Column 3 - full width, represents a row</div>
    </div>
  </div>

  <div class="mainright">
    <div class="basicdiv3rows">
      <div class="row1">art</div>
      <div class="row2-horizontallinemain-artandculture"></div>
      <div class="row3">some content</div>
    </div>
  </div>
  
  <div class="mainleft showsmall">
    <div class="row">
      <div class="col-md-12">Column 1 - full width, represents a row</div>
      <div class="col-md-12">Column 2 - full width, represents a row</div>
      <div class="col-md-12">Column 3 - full width, represents a row</div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>/*end of maincontainer */

By class do you mean the showlarge / showsmall?

If so - you won't find references to those - I made them up for this solution.

I am not sure if this is considered a general pattern - it is something I came up with a while back to address a similar problem I was having with responsive site that used a layout of alternating text and image blocks in a two column layout - when this collapsed to a single column layout it was going text image image text instead of text image text image - I used this solution for that. I also used it in a two layer responsive menu - the top layer on large screens needed to move below the bottom layer on smaller screens - solved it in the same way by repeating the top menu top and bottom and simply hiding or showing the one or the other depending on the screen size.
